Nazis Reminded of Churchill’s Promise to Retaliate for Jewish Sufferings

Download PDF for this date

The promise made by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill some time ago that “Jewish sufferings will not be forgotten,” coupled with a pledge of retributions by the Allied Nations, was broadcast here last night over the British radio.

Describing the contributions of the Jews to the war effort of the United Nations and the role which the Jews play in the armed forces of these nations, the broadcast dwelt at great length on the massacres of Jews which the Gestapo is now carrying out in the occupied countries of Eastern Europe and warned the Nazis that revenge will be taken for the murdered Jewish civilian population.

A broadcast on the massacres of Jews by the Nazis in Poland and other occupied countries was also delivered here last night by Chief Rabbi Joseph H. Herts. The broadcast of the Chief Rabbi was directed to countries on the European continent.

The Polish National Council will hold a special session on Thursday to consider the reports of Nazi terror against Poles and Jews in occupied Poland, it was announced today. A joint conference of Jews and Christians in Scotland to deal with the question of Nazi terror against Jews will also be held soon in Glasgow, it was reported in a joint announcement by the Jewish Representative Council and the Edinburgh Fellowship of Christians and Jews.
